I have to read labels religiously to avoid getting "nuked" with my food allergies!

I've read this before and can't believe that I missed some of the content. Or it just did not penetrate my brain! I hate when that happens.

Reading labels is very important. Due to having to limit salt, I had to read all. Needless, to say has made me aware of Sugar and fat. Waaaaaay too much sugar in this processed food.

As a dietitian, we never had anyone focus on the daily values because rarely did anyone fit the 2,000 kcal per day. Definitely focus first on the serving size then fat, cholesterol, sodium, carbs, fiber. If a prescribed diet required (renal failure/dialysis) then other areas. But keep it as simple as possible. Next time you are in the store look at a regular item and compare to a “diet” version of same. Most often the regular item is better choice.
